Paul, you're beating your dead horse, again.  It's irrelevant whether
people consider the parallel development features to be of "minor" or
"major" benefit.  The point isn't what they measure the relevant benefit
here, but rather what CVS was designed to deliver.  If anyone considers
the concurrent development features of CVS to be even a minor annoyance
then they are clearly not using the right tool for the job.  Period.

Use the right tool for the job, or be annoyed.  It's your choice.  At
this point there shouldn't even be any valid believable excuse for
making the wrong choice any more.

Hmmm....  I don't see you offering up any working code.  You'd think
after a decade of complaints that someone would have offered up a new
variant of CVS that works better with binary files -- if only to quite
the compliants.  Maybe it's a little more complex than you've made it
out to be!

Your reasoning is so illogical it's not even funny.  I wish it were
beyond belief too, but I've come to expect the same from you anyway.

Use the right tool for the job, or be annoyed and poorly supported.
It's YOUR choice.
